's an upgrade to yourself. >>> our second story "outfront." is chuck hagel's nomination dead on arrival? now hagel, the former republican senator and vietnam war hero, could be president obama's choice to be the next defense secretary. but today he's under attack by a group of gay republicans known as the log cabin republicans. now, this full-page ad said hagel's wrong for the job because of a statement he made back in 1998, when he questioned whether, in his words, a quote, openly, aggressively gay nominee could be an effective u.s. ambassador. now, a lot's changed since then, and hagel has since apologized, though that has also come under attack for his somewhat controversial beliefs on israel, iraq, and iran. are these attacks justified, or is he just the latest political target in an ugly game of gotcha politics.

's bring in barbara starr at the pentagon for more on this potential chuck hagel nomination. we don't know if he'll be nominated yet. barbara, what are the attacks against hagel? >> classic washington trial balloon. the nomination isn't out, nomination hasn't been made, but the pins are sticking in that trial balloon. first, senator hagel apologized for comments he made back around 1997, 1998 when there was a man who was openly gay about to become an ambassador, hagel opposed all of that, made some comments about gay people. now he says all these years later he regrets it, it is not what he believes. and by all accounts members of those who represent pro gay rights movements in washington have accepted senator hagel's apology on that. item number two, a lot of questions about whether hagel is tough enough on iran. did he cast some votes in the senate that did not support sanctions against iran? number three, israel. this may be the one that gets the most traction and already has, in fact. a lot of pro israeli groups are saying that senator hagel simply isn't supportive enough of israel. be

to make. former senator chuck hagel has come under criticisms for comments he made including about another former ambassador during the clinton years that being gay was an inhibiting factor of being gay to do an effective job. is there anything about chuck hagel's statements or comments that are disqualifying to you about him running the justice department? >> first of all, i haven't made a decision who to nomination. my number one criteria will be who is going to do the best job in america. >> anything you see disqualifying him? >> no. he's a patriot. he's somebody who has done extraordinary work in the senate, somebody who served this country with valor in vietnam and somebody who is currently serving on any intelligence advisory board and doing an outstanding job. so i haven't made a decision on this. with respect to the particular comments that you quoted, he apologized for it and i think it's a testimony wto what has been a positive change over the last decade in terms of people's attitudes about gays and lesbians serving our country. and that's something that i'm very proud to have l
